A New Meth Surge Gathers Momentum

The opioid epidemic has killed tens of thousands over the last two years and driven major reforms in state and local law enforcement and public health policies for people with addiction.

But another deadly but popular drug, methamphetamine, also has been surging in many parts of the country. And federal officials say that, based on what they learned as opioids swept the U.S., methamphetamine is likely to spread even further.

“The beginning of the opioid epidemic was 2000 and we thought it was just localized,” said Kimberly Johnson, director of the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). “Now we know that drug outbreaks aren’t likely to stay localized so we can start addressing them sooner and letting other states know of the potential for it spreading.”

Sneeze on end of the ballon the other end inflates. People are always going to do drugs which everone they can get cheap and easy. Legalize all drugs and control the sale and use of drugs. Provide clean and safe places to use and the problem will work itself out. Look at Portugal all drugs and use are legal. They have less crime and much lower use rates

so your stupid opinion is that anyone who tries angel dust is a delusional addict who murders families?

I wonder how many families have been murdered by a delusional addict of alcohol? Or abusing OTHER legal drugs?

Geesh, the mentality of some people is scary AND infuriating.
